Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto has become an integral cog in Simone Inzaghi’s Biancocelesti machine over the past few years, establishing himself as not only one of the best players at the club but one of the most consistent and creative midfielders in Serie A.Therefore, it is no surprise that a number of clubs have been interested in signing the Spaniard; his former club Sevilla linked closely with him last summer.
Speaking to Onda Cero on an Instagram Live stream, Luis Alberto discussed the interest from Sevilla, in addition to confirming that a renewal with Lazio is on the horizon.
“I’ve always said Sevilla is my home and I’d like to return there, but my future is at Lazio, so that is practically impossible. Talks are at an advanced stage for a contract extension and I think it’ll come soon.”
The midfielder also opened up on his career prior to joining Lazio, stating:
“I wasn’t mature enough at Sevilla and made the step up in quality quite late in the day. I didn’t get the playing time I wanted at Liverpool, then I started well at Malaga and was enjoying my football at Deportivo but I got injured.”
“I made the big step up at Lazio, a wonderful club. Joining Lazio was the best decision of my life. Nobody really knew me and that was my fault. I was training by myself at Liverpool, but changed mentality with coach Juan Campillo and took that next step.”
